4 out of 5 eggs Nice Motherboard 03/19/2013

This review is from: ASUS P8B-X LGA 1155 Intel C202 ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard

Pros: Works exactly as advertised. Has integrated video. Fit my processor with heat sink without issue. worked with my Linux Centos 6.X install just fine.

Cons: bios is organized in a very unintuitive way. It was difficult finding several settings.

Other Thoughts: I would buy this mother board again.

iStarUSA 3U Stylish Zinc-Coated Steel Rackmount Server Chassis Front-mounted ATX Power Supply (D-300-PFS)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap, ATX, Holds everything I needed it to. Fit my mother board and hard drives without issue.

Cons: One of the expansion covers was missing with packaging... but I had extra.

Other Thoughts: love the lockable front part of that case. Be extra careful when buying a power supply for this case and make sure it fits. I had to open my power supply up and switch the direction of the fans.

WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX

Pros: If a server being delayed for deployment lead to a person living longer then I'd say that this would be a pretty good hard drive to buy.

Cons: the BIOS couldn't even detect two of the drives. The third drive that could be detected prevented my box from booting because it was just clicking which prevented the operating system from getting past hdd detection. Even more insulting was the fact that these drives were already formatted with a windows file system. WHICH MEANS THEY WERE USED. So I deploy my server with a usb flash drive since I don't need a large or fast boot disk. About a week later I try to create a software raid 1 with the remaining 2 disks. While formatting the first disk... it fails. So now were up to a 80 percent fail rate in under 3 weeks. I'm kinda impressed actually.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why these disks were so terrible. I'm not sure if it's Western Digital's fault or Newegg's. Fortunately, Newegg is willing to take RMA's on these drives. I'll never buy western digital ever again. If anything like this happens again with a different manufacturer, then I won't be buying my harddisks from Newegg either.
